Mediation has become one of the foremost ways of resolving legal issues.
George F. McFadyen has participated in more than 100 mediations, of which 95% have been successfully resolved.
Mediations are a principled way to resolve all of the issues between parties except for the granting of a divorce which must be done by the Courts.
Issues of custody, access, child and spousal support, equalization of net family property and benefits can all be resolved by way of mediation, which frequently result in the signing of a Separation Agreement, or in the alternative, if an action has been started, by the signing of Minutes of Settlement to resolve the ongoing action.
Mediation involves hiring a mediator and paying a lawyer to be present a brief to the mediator and attend at the mediation in order to resolve the issues between the parties. The mediation, if entered into initially, can bring a quick and satisfactory resolution to all issues.
It assists in saving the parties the high cost of entering into litigation through the Court System.
